MB2 Dental’s Secret of Success: Integrity, Vision, and Fun

What do cutting edge technology, progressive community bonds, and nerf guns have in common? Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, founder of MB2 Dental, a company that focuses on providing business support solutions and an inclusive sense of community to a network of 70 affiliates spanning six states, with over 500 employees. He is a dedicated practitioner of dentistry and brings this devotion to his business sensibilities.

Dr. Villanueva is smart enough to realize that he isn’t the smartest guy at the table when it comes to building such a ground-breaking company, gathering together a team of out-spoken, creative, and very intelligent people just as dedicated to the prospect of providing dentists with the means to control their own business needs, remain autonomous, but still participate in this community of dentist-owned businesses. He also tries not to take himself too seriously or micromanage his own company, trusting in the senior management team to keep their collective eyes on his vision for the company, offering a little inspiration, and not getting in the way.

Except when it comes to keeping co-workers on their toes and in a good mood – which is where the nerf guns come into play. There’s nothing like having impromptu nerf battles to keeping the mood light around the corporate offices.

That’s not the only sense of fun permeating Dr. Villanueva’s office. The other involves the cutting-edge technology that helps management run this specialized company. The program that keeps the doctor, his team, and their clients all on the same page is a home-grown software called Jarvis. Based on, yes, Tony Stark’s AI computer program from Marvel Comics and the cinematic Avengers movies, thanks to Dr. Villanueva’s love of Iron Man.

Faced with traditional workplace expectations once out of dental school, which were either hanging out a shingle and starting a small private practice, or joining a large firm, Dr. Villanueva took the third option and thought outside the box. He envisioned a business model that would offer support services in marketing, patrol, compliance, HR and legal while fostering a community of affiliated private practice dentists, and incorporate cutting-edge technology into both sides of the business, allowing individual dentists and the corporate side of MB2 Dental to stay on the same page in regards to the bottom line – providing the best care possible to their patients, and being the support system for those dentists.

MB2 Dental Solutions Offers Services That Let Dentists Get Back To Caring For Patients

MB2 Dental Solutions was founded by Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva in 2009. After starting out like every other dentist, he became frustrated with the problems that dentists every day. He decided to start a new company that would allow dentists to “get back to being dentists”, while still receiving the benefits and wealth associated with their talents and drive. MB2 Dental was created with a vision of combining all of the positive characteristics that are associated with group practices and sole practitioners while taking away all of the negative aspects. MB2 now has over 75 employees and over 60 affiliated offices in 6 different states- Alaska, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Louisiana. MB2 Dental acts as a partner to their affiliated dentists and practice owners, offering them a plethora of services that allow them to run their office properly and efficiently without giving up their control of patient care and their own standards of care. MB2 believes that dentists should be able to focus on what they do best without having to worry about the business aspects.

 

 

Working with integrity, innovation, teamwork, and excellence, MB2 Dental works with their affiliated offices to provide them with services like accounting and finance, human resources, compliance, credentialing, IT, billing and collections, marketing, recruiting, procurement, business development, and training. The company takes care of things like employee relations, payroll, benefits, compensation, labor relations, employee development, and talent acquisition.

MB2 Dental also helps in the recruiting process, helps an office market themselves, and helps them get all of the credentialing that is necessary to expand their patient base and get back to caring for patients the best way they can.
